What have you been watching on (proper scripted) telly?

Recommended Posts

Me and my wife have been watching The Good Place. Everyone was right about it falling off a cliff by the third series weren't they? The 2nd series was ok, but I don't know what the show is supposed to be now we're halfway through the 3rd series. It has lost its purpose without ever having good humour to fall back on. Proper shit now.

Good Place isn't a Netflix show, it's NBC. Netflix just have the rights to show it in the UK.

Ah, fair enough then. Maybe rushed deadlines and cheap hack'n'slash editing are to blame for this widespread irritation?  The final minutes of every episode of The Good Place feel clumsy, almost as if the episodes were originally meant to be longer but had to be hastily shortened.

The second part of Arrested Development is way better than the first half (which picked up in the last episode) Its a shame it has been buried really, and I cannot look at Tambor the same way knowing that, even putting aside the sex abuse accusations, he's an awful prick.

The problem was they just never got everyone back together at the same time. That's what made it brilliant in the old days. Also yeah, fuck that Ron Howard family stuff and ruining Michael as a character

Nearly finished The OA part 2. All I Want to say is Brit Marling manages to be completely captivating and really bad at acting at the same time.

I still can't decide if I liked the first season or not. It seemed quite pretentious but entertaining enough to watch until the end.

It's definitely pretentious nonsense but there's a good story in there and it's an interesting take on it's subject matter. But yeah, anytime Marling acts out of type she's comically bad.

Edit

Just finished this and man you have to see the ending to believe it.

they do a fucking Blazing Saddles. What a  stupid fucking ending.

Phoebe Waller-Bridges performance in tonight’s Fleabag is unbelievable. 

I like the twist of Father Moriarty seeming to know when she's breaking the fourth wall. It is a fantastic episode.

Andrew Scott has been class in this, hasn't he? PWB is on another level, that was indeed a fantastic performance. The confession box out-pour was her at her very best. I wasn't happy with them getting it on at first, was hoping it'd either stretch out or never happen, but then the 'act of god' finished the episode off nicely.

Andrew Scott just seems to really enjoy every part he plays, or at least whatever I've seen him in. I always get a feeling that he loves what he does and it comes through in his performance.

I agree. I don’t think he’s ever been less then great in anything.

i gave up on Baptiste. Shame as I like the character and the original The Missing, but this was dull. My wife saw it through and said it was awful.

 

who cares though, the best BBC Drama is back next week fellas. Let’s hope Line of Duty continues to be essential viewing

The mentality is that every episode finish on a big cliffhanger to try and entice you back for the net episode. I can kind of see the mentality behind it.

Theory:

 

She's not actually been addressing/acknowledging the audience, she's addressing her dead mate. Until now it's largely been entirely in her head but as she's got more stressed, it's becoming noticeable to people who pay attention (which is just the priest.)"

Yeah Baptiste eneded up being pretty dull but the worst part of it all was Tom Hollander's acting, fucking dreadful.
